Abstract

Calcium phosphate bone cement (CPC), a ceramic material, is commonly used as a biomaterial for the restoration of bone injuries. This study creates the composite scaffolds by mixing CPC with various amounts of polylactide fibers. Then, the resulting scaffolds are observed and tested in terms of the morphology, compressive strength, and fiber distribution, respectively, to explore the influence of the addition of polylactide fibers on the scaffolds. According to the experimental result, the compressive strength of the scaffolds increases as a result of an increase in the addition of fibers.
